a helping hand to the stricken maki government. washington is now pondering over how to bomb iraq in such a way as to not provoke a backlash after all the crises there has a strong signal tarion background with the militants being sunni muslims so what's your response to airstrikes just aren't the answer here well look the whole answer but they may well be one of the options that are important to be able to stem the tide and stop the movement of people who are moving around in open convoys and trucks and turrets and people the sick caring component video walks crises is already trained traditional alliances iran wants to cooperate with the u.s. to assist iraq's shia government washington's ally saudi arabia on the other hand warns against any foreign interference and made reports that wealthy sunni donors in saudi arabia kuwait and carter have been funding militants from the islamic state of iraq and syria the us is allied with all the gulf countries that are
supporting the sunni rebels in syria that are supporting them in iraq this is an old problem with the isis militants grew out of the six carrying boy in iraq which started after the u.s. and u.k. invasion in two thousand and three today some of the politicians who made the decision to invade are anxious to wash their hands of blame the u. case tony blair wrote we have to liberate ourselves from the notion that we have caused this we haven't the sunni extremists now control vast areas in iraq including the cities of fallujah and to create as well as mosul the second largest these cities which have been battered by the decade long war looked very different before the u.s. and u.k. invasion. in two thousand and two i was in a most ruling in the northern city that has been now seized by the rebels the sunni revolt that time in two thousand and two mostly low and i was greeted by people in mosul they were christians they were sunni arabs shiite arabs and they were kurds
they were a tapestry they were around the multination. multicultural communities of the wreck at that time and they were living in peace today they are divided along sectarian lines because of an outside invasion washington is now divided between those who oppose any u.s. military intervention in iraq and those who say something has to be done because of the. great to this day officials from the outside say they don't own iraq's problems and they do want to help the government there but the militants out however many experts agree it is their return only a matter of time in washington i'm going to show you on our facebook right now take a closer look at how iraqis are terry and blood geopolitical interests in their region mark here in rad are the countries where sunni muslims make up the majority of include qatar and of course america's closest ally in the region saudi arabia

welcome back to what you are to international after are fusing to pays hadji bills for six months caves natural gas supply was finally turned up this week as to how came to this let's now take a look at the facts according her leo's russia in excess of four billion dollars after stopping payments in november now what russia wanted when it set its final deadline was that it at least receives half of that money ukraine's problem apparently is the price while key is happy neither with the current price nor the one offered by moscow and in fact it in serious on a price that a colder market one but which would also be one of the lowest in e.u. or kids demanding to pay only half of what some european nations pay in even the e.u. has called russia's final offer of birth thousand cubic meters a reasonable one now it's only a crane which has refused to budge and we asked a number of experts what caves really playing for. the next few minutes would stand
on their heads instead what the liberals till the cows come home and it wouldn't change the situation and i think the negotiating tactics of the ukrainian government. are simply designed to make someone crazy in moscow you appear to compromise you appeared to be reasonable and suddenly everything collapses this isn't going to help ordinary ukrainian people it's crazy ition have relations with russia which of course is ukraine's by far the largest trading partner so really a deal was in the new ukrainian people's interest and i don't really understand why hasn't gone through what happens now is you know that russia makes the choice and it's not the choice between the you know losing more money or being the bad guy the main thing is to stop losing money now switch off the guys go to a prepaid system in somebody is respected much more than in the starting to do that in the automobile. now as of this week the only gas russia is sending three grains
is that which has been bought by europe but given past experiences it is still nervous to remind you in two thousand and six half of europe was left in the cold when ukraine began siphoning gas from the pipes and there was another so-called gas war three years a later when ukrainian supplies were reduced and i began tapping the pipes again with held eighty six million cubic meters of gas then wreaking havoc on the economies of eastern europe especially while russia promises to keep the use gas flowing despite its differences with ukraine he has ability to guarantee transit though is already being down to a day after its gas was cut off an explosion hit a segment of a pipeline to europe well this is the video footage of the incident and ukraine's interior ministry says be explosion was most likely the result of a terrorist attack fortunately the blast happened in
a secluded area away from any people for now all fuel transit has been switched to reserve pipeline and europe is getting its gas in full. if ol alice failed skiis got an early ties it can still rely on the son of the american vice president serves on the board of directors of ukraine's the largest private gas corporation and his father joe biden is coming to kiev for a second time in as many months looks at the long trail american politicians backing ukraine's new government. whether it's secretary of state john kerry laying flowers his assistant victoria nuland handing out cookies. senator john mccain offering support from a down protest at sarah is what you i mean america's presence in ukraine has been visible since the crisis began late last year and that presence is only growing as
u.s. vice president joe biden again visits kiev his son hunter is settling into his new job on the board of ukraine's largest private gas provider certainly one of the reasons provides president biden might be going personally would be to ensure that he's cast interests are secured for for his son washington officials arrived full of praise for the new kiev government despite its crackdown in the east saying represents the will of the people america claims it's keen for the people to be heard and that no country should interfere with the affairs of another day sen john mccain talking to me in kiev in december need to make it clear. to the russian government anywhere near putin that interference in the affairs of ukraine is not acceptable to the united states of america or to any other free country in the world ok the message is clear but critics argue the presence of the vice president's son on the board of
a prominent gas company the continual procession of u.s. officials in an ounce of kiev and the promise of financial and military aid represents its own form of interference which only prolongs the conflict in the country and let us not forget that the western leaders also supported the overthrow of the attic over its cover of it and what they that were so what they supported is more really instability and i've read so this was a thing their support really means nothing to the internal cod. it's going to continue as we see it so against the backdrop of on rest in the east and continuing talk of sanctions and threats against russia vice president joe biden becomes the latest u.s. official to touch down carefully making sure he doesn't cross the line from support to interference quality. local police forces in america are getting a heavy duty upgrade in the form of military equipment washington says it's using
surplus hardware from its overseas wars to bolster security at home but some americans fear their neighborhoods are now turning into war zones of their own none has a details. well as it very good news winding down its longest streak of war soldiers are returning home and so is their military arsenal a used armored vehicle that will be used during swat calls and other emergency situations nine foot tall mine resistant trucks specifically designed to survive roadside bomb attacks are parked all throughout the u.s. local and state police departments have acquired more than four hundred m. wraps and silencers and tens of thousands of m. sixteen machine guns and night vision equipment the new paradigm is it's the military paradigm militarized police and the problem with that is when they look at american citizens often they see only combatants this is all made possible through america's military transfer program created in the ninety's when violence and drug
gangs plagued major cities today crime in the u.s. has fallen to its lowest in a generation and the special response team in richland county south carolina looks like this ready to take on the taliban should it invade the south iraq war veteran emily yates says her country's law enforcement is being trained to fight against the public instead of serving to protect it they should be trained to deescalate any violence or aggression that's happening but instead the police are showing up and causing violence and aggression people are just afraid all the time and for no reason our country has never been invaded we have no foreign armies at our doorstep however a sheriff in indiana claims his county needs em wraps to protect against possible attacks by veterans returning from home i see a lot of paranoia about that because i don't like it usually excuse to arm police like they're going to you know like the people of afghanistan that we've got
a problem they're using that as a way to militarize the police for whatever they think might be coming in the future a future where america's local police forces will be prepared for war but who will they be warring against marina r.t. . now spain's new king was crowned on thursday followed by the six takes over from his father one carlos the first was abdicated but not all spaniards are celebrating there were anti-monarchy protests nationwide even in the center of the capital were security was heightened for their relatively low key coronation three police officers were injured during clashes in madrid and seven activists were arrested but quickly released the protest mood has been heightened by years of a sturdy and soaring unemployment while the water he was seen a patch waving a lavish lifestyle and seeing its reputation battered by fraud allegations royal watchers say the new king's got a tough job on his hands. juan carlos was very charismatic and funny she was close
to the people however if you leave a function to read and this might be a problem for the more keys there are too many expectations that he's going to arrange for them for a human crisis economy problems. to point to show he's only a king but without a political role we do not expect. felipe or actually or for any of the boy family we need to understand that that we as we talk that scots. cardless is a king that has constantly denying that the spanish has been imposing cuts alone the only one and that where majority that's not only are these to vote in the night of november about didn't happen that's a that's not only. in the ballot for the resources of the south china sea a small village in the philippines could find itself becoming a second fishel pawn it's worth the authorities intangibility an american military
base with a country looking to use increased military cooperation with washington as a way of keeping china a bay the two allies are also planning joint drills this month near the disputed area there beijing claims ownership but. well as james crow babblings pressuring china could lead to bitter conflict both china and the us and its allies are playing to their respective political bases and they're looking for economic stimulus that comes from militarization so they are looking to divert more government funds towards the defense sector i think it's part of a feedback loop where one side makes a move so the other is seen to respond to it so the other side responds to the response etc and i think when we are caught in that type of feedback loop it runs the risk of running into a some type of military confrontation scenario simply because when you have all of these ships in these highly disputed territories that are at times running into each other as we start to see these types of incidents that could become
a hot war scenario perhaps inadvertently. i'm next in our team a little now a history of race based certainly zation programs in the united states to stay with us. so are we going back to iraq recently violence has flared up as insurgents are taking cities from the current iraqi government and response to this chaos obama declared that his administration is prepared to take military action whenever our national security is threatened oh well since the weapons of mass destruction were never found in iraq and the current militants can't shoot a k forty seven over the ocean i don't see how u.s. national security is at risk now or before the iraq war even started but on the other hand the flow of oil from us but tamia well that might be at risk but sometimes i forget that obama is a politician and just
a day later he was quoted as saying quite the opposite about the same situation declaring that we will not be sending u.s. troops back into combat in iraq which sounds great to my ears until you wait yet another few days and now he is saying that they want to send at least two hundred so. the five troops to provide support and security for u.s. personnel and the u.s. embassy in baghdad i think this orwellian attitude towards the truth comes from two factors one lying works and obama gets away with it and to the fear of looking weak presidents have to act confident like they were total control of that awesome plan even when they have no idea what they're going to do i think this is the case with this iraq issue but that's just my opinion.
